Google Stadia has bagged a huge games list update which will come as a blow to the PS4, Xbox One and PCs.
Google Stadia is set to launch this November, and will offer streaming of a huge range of big name games simply through a Chrome browser.
At first the only way to play Stadia will be via the Founders Edition, which costs £119 and includes a Chromecast device and Stadia controller.
Chromecast will let Stadia users stream games on their TVs, and the Founders pack also includes three months of access to Stadia Pro.
This offers 4K game streaming for £8.99 per month, but if you’re happy to play games in 1080p then you’ll be able to access Stadia Base for free next year.
Launching in 2020, access to Stadia Base is free and will let gamers stream titles to Google devices like Chrome, a Pixel phone or Chromecast.
